Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
— Rabindranath Tagore, from the poem “Where the Mind is without Fear”, Gitanjali
Happy One Year Anniversary, O Blog, My Keeper of Dreams.
15th August. Today is India’s Independence Day. Exactly a year ago, I started writing this blog. How quickly time passes, or how slowly, depending on whether you are enduring excruciating pain or enjoying unfathomable happiness. And down that inexorable passage of time, the Journeyman continues. The road’s been beautiful. Ask not where it leads.
